life has been busy here in daisy-land. trying to get my garden going.-i've decided to de-stress and let go of the idea of a full garden this year. it just aint gonna happen. digging up all these raised beds so i can lay down hardware cloth(blasted gophers!) is taking so much longer than i thought. oh well-"que sera sera!" my new motto-"what will be will be"-i'm lightening up! i'm trying something new in one raised bed. i should have done it last fall, but-que sera sera! i layed down alfalfa cubes(they are rich in nitrogen) i think i might have put too much though-as they swell when they are wet. then i covered it with straw-let the rain pound on it(or hose) to help break the cubes up and enrich my clay-oops! i mean soil.
we'll see what happens. my potatoes are doing awesome.--they are growing at an amazing speed. i can't keep up with the hilling up. i have peas and kale too. i hope to do tomatoes this weekend. my lettuce is pretty much done-all ready too hot.
little son and i tried our first try at homemade sauerkraut-the easy way-thanks for the directions debra! it was too easy and son loved beating the cabbage with the potato masher. it is suppose to be ready in 3 days!
well-i need to get going-we need to start schooling, the chicks box needs cleaning and i have a dentist appointment after lunch-damn!
